Quote: "I have no need for friends, even less for enemies."
Profile (from Hasbro's original tech specs): "Slag is enormously strong, disruptive, and just plain mean-spirited and often brawls with his comrades... which is why they seldom help him when he's in trouble. Despite his nasty, rash personality, he does share their dislike for authority. His mouth shoots 3000 degrees Celcius flames up to 80 feet and he enjoys melting enemies into pools of liquid metal. He isn't too bright and likes shattering brick buildings with his head, he also uses an electron blaster in Dinobot Mode.
Slag is my second most favorite of the Dinobots and the only one I have two different versions of, namely the G1 red variant that saw limited release in Canada back in 1985 and the silver G2 version. The reason for this is that I had lost (or it was stolen, I never really found out which exactly) the original my parents had bought me, and when G2 came out and I saw they re-released Slag, I nabbed him up right away. The red variant was more of a no-brain decision on my part to have the most 'toon looking version as possible, hence me being broke for several weeks after I received him by mail. Still, never regretted the decision. Even less now that I have the Dreamwave poster in my office, opposite the plexi case where my Dinobots great anyone coming into the room with their weapons raised. Heh.
: I used Grimlock as a reference to keep the proportions straight. Slag, like Snarl and Swoop, has two versions for his G1 self. One more cartoon-like, the other more toy looking, which uses black instead of red and white for the head and upper legs.
Witness the grandeur and perfection that are the Dinobots here: Grimlock
The toy versions of these five can be seen here: Grimlock -Toy-
, Slag -Toy-
, Sludge -Toy-
, Snarl -Toy-
and Swoop -Toy-
Two of the Dinobots took Nucleon and eventually lost their ability to transform, becoming Action Master Grimlock
and Action Master Snarl
Generation 2 eventually rolled in and the Dinobots, able to transform again, where reborn: G2 Grimlock
, G2 Slag
, G2 Sludge
, G2 Snarl
and G2 Swoop
